Harold D. Underdown Visits on Book Bites for Kids

This week Suzanne Lieurance (from THE NATIONAL WRITING CENTER FOR CHILDREN) is hosting Harold D. Underdown on Book Bites for Kids each afternoon (Tuesday to Friday) at 2:00 pm CST. Harold will be offering all types of advice and information for children’s writers. Harold is probably best know for his phenomenal website, THE PURPLE CRAYON, a wealth of information for children’s writers. And Harold has also written THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE TO PUBLISHING CHILDREN’S BOOKS.

You can call in LIVE and ask Harold a question: 1-646-716-9239. Or if you can’t listen live, use the Book Bites link above where all the interviews are archived.

And when visiting THE PURPLE CRAYON, be sure to check out fellow Guardian Angel Publishing author, Margot Finke. She has featured tips there called, “Margot’s Musings.
